Age/Ripeness of Hot Hungarian Wax Peppers

I know nothing about the subject above except a little I found on a forum search. I specifically am curious as to how far along my HHW peppers are in the process, as ripening of this pepper is pretty well documented in FAQ's & such. The pepper by itself below was just short of 4 inches when picked (probably 2-3 weeks before ripening?). The big pepper you can see a bit of in the whole plant pic that follows (one sticking straight up, upside-down) was about 5 inches long when picked a few days ago. How far away from ripening was it (gone...lol...mmmmm)? When they turn red, will they get hotter? Any & all help appreciated. =)

Peace - Steve
